photo friday: sunflower

sunflowerYou know, until I took these shots yesterday I never realised that sunflowers are really just massively overgrown daisies...

It was kinda weird actually... I spotted these things at the beginning of the week while I was on my walk, but I have no idea how the hell I didn't see them before that. I mean maybe it was too early in the morning the week before and I wasn't paying attention, but they just seemed to appear out of nowhere.

Pretty as all hell though... maybe because they're so tall and so big, or they're just so yellow and perky... but once I'd seen them in "the flesh" I realised that sunflowers are probably one of my favourite flowers.

They're also kind of appropriate right at the moment, with the excess of sun we've been having (see, look at that, flawless segue there *rolls eyes*)... and naturally the heat couldn't just fizzle away, we had to go out with a bang... cue two days of over 40°C before the change appears tomorrow evening. And of course that comes with a 32°C overnight low tonight...

Actually I can't complain too much (well, I can, but nobody listens), I popped outside very briefly earlier to get my mail and it's filthy outside, but it's actually not bad in my place... I managed to suck just enough cool air in the last few days to give myself a fighting chance. It's going to be tonight and tomorrow that are worse though (although large chunks of tomorrow will be spent sucking up as much cool air in shopping malls and related structures as humanly possible)... but hopefully the change will have started rolling in by this time tomorrow.

Of course part of my problem tonight will be what the hell to have for dinner... I'm fed up to the backteeth with salads, but a) it's too hot for much else and b) I don't have a whole hell of a lot left in the house. But just wait until next week... temperatures in the mid 20's, time on my hands... I'll be cooking up a freakin storm! I'd go and get take-out, but that would mean I'd have to leave the house...

Honestly, I'm just bored out of my mind...

I don't get it - we are closing to the equator but seldom gets over 35 degrees. Weird.

closing=closer
gets=get

You can tell I'm utterly exhausted...

Yeah, but I think that means you get more of the monsoonal type weather (proof in point, all that rain/flooding going on in your neck of the woods)... me, I'm livin in the driest state on the driest continent baby! But you would think that fact that there's nothing between us and Antarctica would mean SOMETHING...
